Question about Westell Wirespeed LiteLine 6100 (B9961001002) Modem

1 Answer

Fooled with settings too much?

Hey experts, I was setting up a private server for a game, I know I have all of the settings I need to be right, however no one could connect to my server except for myself, no firewalls no antivirus, nothing to stop someone from getting in. I started to fool around with the settings in the modem to see if I could get it to work, now my internet light is out my internal and external ip's have changed. I had to go through the connection wizard to set up a new way to connect, it works but it is a real pain because now I have to manually start it up where it was always connected before. Hope I gave enough detail, thanks!

Desktop will not conntect to internet, but it says connected. My laptop works with the wireless network connection just fine, however, we cannot get the desktop to work. any suggestions? i have been on...


You didn't mention if your desktop is connected hardwired or wireless. Let's assume your desktop is connected hardwired via ethernet cable and your PC is saying that your are connected, then you need to check 2 things. First, TCP/IP settings, go to the network connections page of your PC and look for Local Area Connection. You need to right click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties. Then on the next page, look for Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) or Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) for Win Vista and Win 7 OS. You need to click on it to highlight it then click on Properties. On the next page, make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" and Obtain DNS Server address automatically" are both selected. Sorry if cannot give you a detailed walkthrough because you didn't mention the Operating System of your PC. Second, check Proxy Settings, open up Internet Explorer and click on Tools on the upper portion then click on Internet Options. On Internet Options page, click on the Connections Tab then click on the button for LAN settings. On the next page, make sure that the "Use Proxy Server for your LAN" is unchecked.

Hi furgan_138,

Did it appear to compete the password creation successfully? When you create a password on these drives it actually splits the storage area into two peices. A public zone and a private zone (private zone is the area that is password protected). Perhaps you seleted as much as you could for the private zone and the 18MB is actually the public zone you are seeing. Try logging in and check what capacity you see on the private zone.

Westell 6100, to smart for job!


you have to activate DHCP in order to make the westell a modem "dummy" (it will just act as a bridge to the internet from your Linksys.
on the modem, go to a setting that is similar to "Public Routed Subinterface". dont choose anything that says "proxy" or "NAT".

find out the Linksys's IP adress by looking at the devices or computers list on the Modem's home page.

Now, put that IP adress on the setting "Public Routed Subinterface" (or similar). If it has a "Subnet Mask" option, type in "255.255.255.0". Also, If it has a "open firewall" or "bypass firewall" option, enable it.
If it does not have a firewall option, disable the firewall on the MODEM, not the linksys. This is also called DMZPlus mode.

If the above does not work, go here on the entire instrucitons for setting up the linksys with your modem.

Zoom X6 Adsl Router


You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
  1. Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
    • Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
      • IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
      • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
      • Gateway: 10.0.0.2
    • Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
    • Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
      • Primary DNS Server: 10.0.0.2
      • It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
    • Select Done.
    • Power down your Xbox 360.
  2. Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
    • From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.2 in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
    • Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
      • User Name: admin
      • Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
  3. Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
    • In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
    • Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
    • On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
      • Internal IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
      • Protcol: DMZ
      • Start Port: 0
      • End Port: 0
    • Click Save Changes
    • Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
    • Click Write Settings to Flash
  4. Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
  5. Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
    • Enter the SSID of your network
    • Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
    • Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
    • Go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings.
    • Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
  6. Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.

Just a bit of explanation. E0 interface is for inside network (LAN interface). E1 is for outside (ISP or WAN physical interface). Dialer1 is for PPPoE (the "actual"/logical WAN interface). The 1.0.0.13 is ISP provided static IP address for the use of the server. This configuration example is for running FTP server, which uses the standard TCP port 20 and 21.

The LAN uses 10.10.10.0 network with 255.255.255.0 subnet for both servers and workstations. All servers within the LAN use static IP address. The router is configured as DHCP server to give out IP info (IP addresses, subnet mask, DNS) to workstations that are configured as DHCP client.

Basically I suggest that you deploy NAT (Network Address Translation) and PAT (Port Address Translation) to setup your own servers behind Cisco router. The NAT is used to translate the ISP's given static IP address to your local IP address. The PAT is used to translate TCP ports (the port 20 and 21) between the two IP addresses.

When using NAT/PAT, keep in mind that the Internet-accessible servers are seen from the Internet as their NAT/PAT-ed IP address (the Public IP address) and not the local IP address (not the Private IP address). This understanding is very important when you or someone need to test connectivity to the server and/or when you need to create filter (access list or ACL for short) to allow only certain incoming traffic from the Internet and block others.

Side Note:
For more info on NAT/PAT concept, check out the following FAQ
»Cisco Forum FAQ »NAT and PAT; Introduction and Implementations

Instruments used in this illustration are pretty much standard for running your own servers. Please note that IP addresses, username, and password are changed. However, you could always modify the configuration to suit your situation.

This sample configuration assumes that you have a block of IP from ISP. There is a dedicated Public IP address for the router WAN interface (the Dialer1 interface) and another dedicated Public IP address for the server PAT IP address. If you only have a single Public IP address for both router WAN interface and server PAT IP address, there are several ways to configure the router.

One way is to use the same command as shown in sample configuration.

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 1.1.1.14 21 extendable
This one configuration way is suitable when you have static IP address from your ISP and you know exactly what the IP address is. In this case you have the 1.1.1.14 single static IP address for both the WAN interface and Public server IP address.

When you are unsure which IP address you receive from the ISP, or when your Public IP address keep changing; then another way to configure the static PAT is following

view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
  1. ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
ip nat source static tcp 10.10.10.2 21 interface Dialer1 21 extendable
With situation of dynamic IP address, at some point you still need to know the exact Public IP address you receive from your ISP for server connection testing and production time. To find out, you can issue show ip interface brief command on the router. You will then see the associated WAN interface Public IP address.

5200 speedstream blocks my peer to peer sites, mystic island game site, all bittorrent downloads and limewire


Hi Shepherd1880,

First thing:
The computer that you're using for these services needs to have a static IP address configured in your private network and not a DHCP address assigned by the router.

Secondly thing:
Depending on your security policies (computer firewall and/or router), you will need to sure that the settings from your router and/or your PC firewall are not blocking the ports that you need to connect for these services.

Once you know that you have this area covered, you can move forward with the necessary procedures to properly configure your Speedstream 5200 using the link below:
